It is almost inconceivable that back then the ladies tried on those bath-caps and thought: "How utterly chic!"

I think the expression back then was “well call me a cab!”  But yes I think any hat that fits like that is unflattering.

Princess Astrid was a real sweetheart - it doesn't appear that she ever caused anyone a moment's pain.   I think all the sadness in the Belgian RF from that era could have been avoided, had she not died in that tragic accident.  Leopold's 2nd wife seems to have caused nothing but trouble.

That is what happens when you marry the rebound.

Does anyone know what relations are like between Leopold III's children by Lilian Baels and the rest of the royal family?

King Leopold III and Queen Astrid decided that their children would go to school with other children. These other children would be from the nobility.

Apparently there is one "problem child" amongst the 3 children of Leopold and Lilian: Marie Christine.

As far as I heard the other siblings, Marie Esmeralda and Alexandre were in a relatively good understanding with their elder half siblings.

The story is that MA was raped/assaulted by a cousin at a party (when she was around 18). She told her mother, who apparently just said scolded her and said she shouldn't make a fuss (as it would be a scandal, if anyone found out).

That's were it all started. I think I read that she also took drugs once, had psychological problems etc.

How she's living in the US with her second husband and has no contact to the family.
